      Yes, it is at least confusing. In the following I assume :set

      I'm not sure, the [( motions are subtly different from the % motion;
      they " go to the other end of the code block" first.

      Yes, I don't understand this.

      No, I don't think so. vim "goes to the other end of the code block"
      within the quotes, but does not find one.

      In principle, I think the behaviour of the [-something motions should
      be judged and tweaked on their usefulness in real code, not, dare I
      say it, simplicity or logic. Then, we should try to explain what
      happens in the help. IMO vim generally does this heaps (a kiwi
      expression meaning lots and lots). So maybe it's right the way it is.
